According to reports, Femi Gbajabiamila, a former speaker of the house of representatives, has resigned from the 10th house. Gbajabiamila reportedly handed his letter of resignation on the floor of the house and Tajudeen Abbas, the newly-sworn in speaker, read it on Wednesday.
Following his resignation, Gbajabiamila is expected to resume his new role as the Chief of Staff to President Bola Tinubu today (Wednesday).

With Gbajabiamila’s resignation from his role as the Speaker of the House, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will now conduct a fresh election to fill the role.
